Kylie Jenner faced backlash after posting and then deleting an Instagram photo expressing support for Israel. The post, shared from the pro-Israel account @StandWithUs, featured the Israeli flag with the caption, “Now and always, we stand with the people of Israel!” Jenner deleted it within an hour due to criticism from some of her 400 million Instagram followers. Many commenters accused her of lacking knowledge and sensitivity, while others pointed out her friendship with supermodel Bella Hadid, a Palestinian rights advocate. The post came in the aftermath of a Hamas attack on Israel, which led to heightened tensions in the region.
